"You have to pick the places you don't walk away from."

--Joan Didion

Seven weeks to Election Day.

Prep the bomb shelters.

We're only at the beginning of what's certain to become a series of unrelenting bomb drops filled with odious Republican horseshit.

Like all horseshit it won't matter if what we're hit with is rational, logical or true.

The goal won't be to enlighten.

It'll be to divert us from the abysmal record of President Chucklehead, from the economic collapse that threatens our domestic stability and from wondering why the Taliban continues to grow in power and might while we keep doing celebratory soft shoes about the surge in Iraq.

The Republicans' need to divert our attention is why we got smacked last week by that stink bomb about Obama wanting to teach little kids about sex.

That bomb drop from maverick central carried a message we're certain to see again and again: Don't think about heavy stuff. Lookee over here instead.

You want that guy around your kids?

It was just like the straight-talk horseshit the newly born change agents launched when attempting to twist and distort Obama's lipstick-on-a-pig quip.

Were they really trying to say Obama called Palin a pig?

I mean, sure, it sounds like him.

He's such a rude bastard, always saying nasty sexist things about women.

Bite me.

The Republican attack machine has a three-word theory: Americans are stupid.

That's their whole theory.

“"if Giuliani had been mayor of this town we'd have taken that miserable son of a bitch apart" - Amen. Although, to give him his meager due, Giuli the mayor was less of a sack of shit than Giuli the cheerleading nun.”

“It scares me that a large group of people take all the horseshit and believe it as Gospel.”

“"They can say New York is a tough city all they want. But if Giuliani had been mayor of this town we'd have taken that miserable son of a bitch apart." Really? I have just two words for you: Frank Rizzo.”

“"Obama should fight back." ... He really should. But if her does, he's 'just like them' and if he doesn't he 'has no backbone'. Oh, how the double standards mount. Up until I read this article, I was starting to consider not voting at all. But the last time I did that, Mrs. Roboto, aka Senator Clinton, won Philly. So guess who's voting. Thanks. :3”
